Reviews

"Impressively balances the sweet and the suspenseful. Queer Black boy joy at its juiciest." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Miller's debut is laudable for its intimate portrayal of a Black community combatting systemic violence by creating their own institutions of support. Moreover, Miller sketches a panorama of queer Black characters who, even under threat, not only survive but thrive. " -- Publishers Weekly

"Miller offers a vivid narrative, shining light onto the complexities of queer Black boyhood. This book's metaphorical layers celebrate the beauty and hardship of growing into adulthood." -- Booklist

"Triumphant and deeply moving, Pritty is a life-affirming love letter to Black and brown queer boys that offers them hope and purpose. Hands down the best book I've read in a while." -- Jay Coles, author of Things We Couldn't Say and Tyler Johnson Was Here

"A staggering achievement in young adult literature. A tender rendering of Black boyhood that makes you yearn for soul food and the people who you call home." -- Jade Adia, author of There Goes the Neighborhood
